R & Python Integration

R & Python Integration

R & Python Integration


I've used R for statistical analysis and graphing and it's hard to beat for this.

However, I'm from a general programming background and starting to miss those capabilities, process control, data transformation etc.

I'm starting to look at rpy2 which runs R in a Python process, it seems to be analogous to C/C++ with embedded SQL; it provides ways to translate objects from Python to R, call R functions, and then get those results back from R into Python objects.

Does anyone have any experience integrating R & Python or any advice?

I'll be posting some examples of what I'm doing in this thread as I go along; other examples would be welcome :)
